The former owner of Fountain Powerboats, Reggie Fountain, tells WITN he is now starting up a new boating company.
Fountain says the name of his new boating company is RF or Real Fast Powerboats.
It was back in December that Fountain left the company he had owned for more than 30 years after it went bankrupt and Liberty Associates bought it.
Now he says he plans to continue his passion for the boating industry with this new company. Fountain says, "What we've got is the latest great stuff. I want to re-do engineering and it's going to run faster, look better, be more modern."
Fountain has a planned space to keep the boats and says he will use his home in Washington for research, development, testing, sales, and delivery.
